We had a hard time picking a hotel to stay at for our Cebu trip but now I know we made the right choice. We arrived at around 9am, as hoteliers, we know that it's challenging to accommodate early check-in requests. We really appreciate it that they allow us to check-in at 1pm, 1 hour earlier than standard check in time. Currently staying at room 918, great mountain view that I don't even bother to close the curtain at night. The hotel is a little out of the way but that's exactly what we are looking for. Nice quiet place without the noisy traffic. The hotel rooms' furnitures and design are outdated, bathroom is a little small but very comfortable, well maintained and is very clean, which is very important. I will rather stay in a clean old room than a dirty trendy room. The staffs from the reception desk (Catherine), concierge (forgot the name) and restaurants (Paul - Cafe Marco and El Viento) are amazing! They were very friendly, professional, always smiling and always ready to assist. Cafe Marco's buffet breakfast is one of the best I had with a reasonable price. It will be good though if the rooms and bathroom will be refurbished but its just a minor issue for us. Is even better if the bathroom can have seperate shower for safety reasons. You can find a lot of grand, modern hotel but its very hard to find a hotel with staffs that will take care of you and treat you with a SINCERE attitude. Yes! As a hotelier we know what is sincere and what is acting (been there, done that ) Will definitely come back if we come to visit Cebu again!
P.S. Think twice before you decide to rent a car! The GPS is horrible and we almost die because of it!
